From town, we will head northeast to a private property where we will focus on grassland and wetland species. From there we will head further west covering mountain slopes, wetlands, and grassland species. Our routes will present visitors with a good selection of birds and habitats on a day’s birding in and around the Escarpment. We can also customize our routes in the area depending on the species requested by our guests. Tour Ends around 2pm.
